Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Log4j 2.8-rc1
Date Tue, 24 Jan 2017 13:42:47 GMT
+1 Works for me.

But there are some issues with https://issues.apache.org/j
ira/browse/LOG4J2-1733

We need to include a note about that in the release notes.

While not technically required, this makes the log4j-slf4j-impl module behave similarly to
slf4j-log4j12, and facilitates migration to Log4j 2.
